Title: Music, Language, and the Brain
Published: 2007
Publisher: Oxford University Press

Author: Aniruddh D. Patel
Hardback: ISBN: 9780195123753 Pages: 528 Price: U.S. $ 59.95

In the first comprehensive study of the relationship between music and
language from the standpoint of cognitive neuroscience, Aniruddh D. Patel
challenges the widespread belief that music and language are processed
independently. Since Plato's time, the relationship between music and
language has attracted interest and debate from a wide range of thinkers.
Recently, scientific research on this topic has been growing rapidly, as
scholars from diverse disciplines, including linguistics, cognitive
science, music cognition, and neuroscience are drawn to the music-language
interface as one way to explore the extent to which different mental
abilities are processed by separate brain mechanisms. Accordingly, the
relevant data and theories have been spread across a range of disciplines.
This volume provides the first synthesis, arguing that music and language
share deep and critical connections, and that comparative research provides
a powerful way to study the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying
these uniquely human abilities.

"This book will be required reading for specialists, and interesting and
informative reading for everyone. It manages to combine remarkable breadth
of coverage with genuine depth of understanding, and it's clearly and
elegantly written. The author has a clear point of view and wants to get
it across to other researchers, but never lets that get in the way of the
book's more fundamental goal of putting the latest research within the
reach of the interested non-specialist reader."
